    Angry Why I Got Rejected 214b please help


    I too was rejected twice under 214b at Mumbai Consulate.
    GRE: 302/340 TOEFL 91/120 Acads 69% (CSE)
    Going for Illinois State University

    VO: Which University
    ME: Illinois State University

    VO: Course?
    ME: Information System

    VO: Which Universities u applied?
    ME: Illinois state university, U of Texas at Dallas, U of Texas at Arlington. U of georgia, UNCC, Rochester Inst. Tech., Stevens Inst. of TEch., NEU.

    VO: Which Universities you got admit?
    ME: ISU, Stevens, UG. UNCC.

    VO: Why ISU?
    ME: Sir the course i.e. IS. It offers me a balanced mixture of software engineering and IT which is a very rare combination to find.

    VO: Why not Stevens?
    ME: Sir it only offer sore course like CS. And my area of interest is IS which is offered by ISU.

    VO: Did you applied to any Indian U?
    ME: No.

    VO: I wonder why dint u applied to any Indian U. They too offer this course.

    Same set of questions with a little improved answers like

    Why ISU: Sir, basically i am a computer science engineer and have proficiency in programming language. Now i want to learn the implementation of my programing skills for real world and business settings. ISU provides me a perfect choice for this (and some what repeated previous ans).

    Reasons for rejection:

    1) Low GRE score
    2) Low ranked universities and looks like some consultant has suggested you these universities;the above universities are their hot favorites.
    3) And its not true that all Indian universities are bad, some are way better than the universities you have selected (Its a different thing that they are more difficult to get into).
    4) You are not clear about your goals. You never get a position like senior team lead without experience, masters or not. More likely it looks like you didn't manage to get a good job here and are trying to get into US as a last resort (it looks like, might not be true)

    I suggest you retake GRE and TOEFL, get a score above 310 and 95 respectively and get a couple of years of work experience (absolutely necessary) or else forget going to US.
